Now there's a relative rarity, a new George Benson album in prospect. The guitar great/vocalist returns with Walking to New Orleans due for release in April. Walking to New Orleans is Benson’s first recording since his 2013 Nat King Cole-inspired album Inspiration. With Benson on the new release are drummer and musical director Greg Morrow, guitarist Rob McNelley, pianist Kevin McKendree, and bassist Alison Prestwood.
